Canada's roster for their World Juniors tryout camp
This is it for the first round folks. It's Day 10, and more than a few SBN participants were willing to go seven rounds with this, but I gather that 24 hours from now we will all be looking back at this mock draft and wondering why the respective teams we cover didn't take our advice! Rounding out the first 30 mock draft picks, are the Blackhawks, Red Wings and Pingouins.

It is day 6 of the SB Nation NHL Mock Draft, and my scouts and I came to a final decision this past Friday afternoon on our selection. When I say "my scouts", I'm not fooling. I took this mock draft quite seriously, and polled three sources to come up with a consensus pick once the players I had hoped to snap up were off the table.
Sports Blog Nation's mock NHL Entry Draft continued today, with the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers and Anaheim Ducks sites announcing their selections, the 13th, 14th and 15th of the mock draft. The second tier of talent after top seven is impressive, but the overall skill package of players looks to drop off some as we get closer to the 20th pick.
Welcome to Day 5 of SB Nation's mock draft, where it's the weekend and there little time for chitchat. The Sabres, Panthers and Ducks all make their picks.
